Born in 1952, Rupert Raj is a Canadian Eurasian counsellor/psychotherapist, consultant, gender specialist, clinical researcher, educator, professional trainer, writer, editor and trans activist. He is a trailblazing activist who has been paving the way to improve life chances for trans people across Canada, the USA and around the world since 1971, the year of his own gender transition. His collection at the CLGA, which has been built from 2006 – 2015, profiles the early life of much of early Canadian trans activism since the 1970s. Limited copies of his book, "Trans Activism in Canada: A Reader," (co-edited with Prof. Dan Irving) will be available for cash sale.

The TransPathfinder Project is a brand-new guide to help researchers and interested community members learn about and find trans archival materials at the CLGA. Written by Prof. Nick Matte, it's one of the products of the LGBTQ Oral History Digitial Collaboratory, a five-year, SSHRCC-funded, multi-institution research project led by Prof. Elspeth Brown.

Speeches will begin at 5pm.
